Autumn leaves of Eikando in Kyoto

By | Sightseeing

November in Japan is the season for autumn leaves. The leaves of the maple tree are colored. It turns yellow at first, then gradually turns red, and finally turns bright red.

In Japanese, there is the word Akibare. On a clear autumn day, the sky is blue and makes you feel refreshed. “Aki” means autumn. “bare” means a clear sky. A sunny autumn day is suitable for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. This day was also Akibare’s day. The sky was a beautiful blue color.

The bright red autumn leaves shine in the blue sky. The color contrast is very beautiful.

Eikan-do in Kyoto is the most popular tourist destination in Japan for the autumn colors. The design of the Zen Japanese-style garden further enhances the beauty of the autumn leaves.

Please enjoy the best autumn leaves in Japan.

How much can you save on your trip with the Go To Travel Campaign? I will introduce it as a concrete example based on the information that is known at the moment.

For example, if you book a package tour of 40,000 yen for 2 days and 1 night via a travel agency, you will receive 20,000 yen, which is half the price. Of the 20,000 yen, 14,000 yen, which is 70%, will be discounted from the travel price, and the remaining 6,000 yen will be given with a regional coupon.

If you book a tour of 50,000 yen for 2 days and 1 night, half of the travel price is 25,000 yen, but the amount of support is 20,000 yen, which is the upper limit of 1 night. However, in the case of a tour of 50,000 yen for 2 nights and 3 days, support will be provided for each night, so 25,000 yen per night (calculated by dividing the travel amount by the number of nights), half the price of 12,500 yen x 2 nights 25,000 yen will be supported.

The maximum amount of support for a day trip is 10,000 yen. If you participate in a day trip bus tour of 8,000 yen, the amount of support will be 4,000 yen, which is half the price, 70% of which, 2,800 yen, will be discounted from the tour price, and the remaining 1,000 yen will be given with a regional coupon. Become. (Coupons are issued in units of 1,000 yen, rounded to the nearest 1,000 yen)

Cosmos (Autumn Cherry Blossom)

By | Sightseeing

Japanese October is the height of the cosmos season. The cosmos flowers are in full bloom now. “Cosmos” is written “Autumn cherry blossom” in Japanese kanji.

Cherry blossom in spring season has particular significance for Japanese people.  Pink cherry blossom has the cultural flower in Japanese history.

In October the temperature drops sharply about 10 degrees in a week. Since the temperature changes sharply, many people often get out of condition.

Summer changes to autumn.  One feels unaccountably lonely on autumn season. Cosmos admirably gives expression to the Japanese lonely feelings.
